ISCA Global Youth and Sport Forum
Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Organized by the International Sport and Culture Association (ISCA) and to be attended by the Special Adviser to the United Nations Secretary-General on Sport for Development and Peace, Mr. Wilfried Lemke, The Global Youth and Sport Forum (GYSF) will take place this year in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The primary objective of the forum is to establish a platform for 100 young Citizens of Europe, Africa and Latin America to debate and act upon the role of youth and sport to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
Specifically, the forum aims to achieve the following objectives and outputs:
- To create a platform for non-formal learning, debate and reflection for youth leaders and youth workers
- To develop and disseminate recommendations from participants in the GYSF to relevant stakeholders at the local, national and international level
- To establish a large scale "market" for participants in the GYSF in which projects and good practices can be presented and debated
- To facilitate international networking and partnership-building between participants in the GYSF and among partner organisations for future youth initiatives relating to sport and the MDGs on local, national and international level
